Child-custody bill: Limit court action while soldier-parents overseas - Pennsylvania

Child-custody bill: Limit court action while soldier-parents overseas

Excerpt:

Pennsylvania soldiers sent into battle overseas would not have to worry about custody battles back home under a bill that cleared the Senate last week and moves to the state House.

Sen. Mike Folmer, R-Lebanon, sponsored the bill that would prevent courts from making permanent changes to custody arrangements involving the children of any serviceman deployed for active duty.

And when a soldier returns home, the bill would prohibit courts from siding against the serviceman on the grounds that his military duties are not in the child's best interest.

this is a wonderful idea for our brave women and men who fight on our behalf for freedom and justice. why in the world should they be penalized and their children be penalized? and when the battle comes in the court they should be concerned about these custody evaluations because Ira Turkat says they don't have enough scientific research. Our troops have to be careful in the battlefield and in the court room

But what about the civilian parent who has joint custody with the military parent being the primary residential. Does this mean that the non- custodial parent has no say as to where the child resides while the parent is overseas?

We are about to begin a documentary of what occurs when fathers and the legal system cross paths. Our hope is to reaching as many people possible, who are or have been involved in this issue. Word of mouth and networking is really the only way to gather the true stories needed to create the documentary.
If you are able to assist in this, please feel free to contact us or pass this message along.
Thank you;
Team Argus.

This is wonderful. Anyone serving in the military, and fighting the war on terrot, should not have to worry about fighting a second war at home. Kudos to PA for stepping up and doing the right thing.

No service person should ever have to lose their child because they served their country.
